Do you notice small chips on your front or back teeth? Are you waking up with headaches or jaw pain due to teeth grinding? Are you worried about the long-term damage being done to your teeth every night?
If you experienced teeth grinding or clenching or chipped teeth, you realize: you need a mouthguard. A mouthguard is a device placed in the mouth on top of the teeth to help with grinding and clenching. Grinding implies the moving of the jaw back and forth, while clenching is biting down with pressure for an extended period of time. The guard acts as a protective layer between your top and bottom teeth.
They re-establish your natural space and protect your teeth from grinding or clenching together, which can cause you to chip and crack your teeth and strain your jaw muscles.
Mouthguard don’t stop you from clenching or grinding, but they serve as a cushion so that your teeth wear down the guard rather than your teeth. They also give your jaw a rest while you sleep. Plus, they can help you and your sleep partner sleep better, too.
Once your dentist determines that you’re a good candidate for a night guard, he will create one that’s custom-made for your mouth. Our custom fit, slim profile night guard is designed to relieve pain and discomfort of night grinding.
